Ending Statement: As the Demonstration comes to an end, and participants have headed home, the City of Angleton would like to express the pride we are feeling. Pride in Bre’Jon Lundy, a young man who took a tragic situation and turned it into a peaceful action for change. Pride in the community who stepped forward to offer water, cooling tents, and came out to march with their friends and neighbors, pride in the Emergency Responders who answered the call, worked the event or stood at the ready to protect our community. Pride in our City Staff who were proactive and reached out to event organizers to ensure we could support and ensure a peaceful event. Today there was no competition; today, there was no agency delineation, today there was only a group of like-minded people working together. Together - we really are better! #Angletonstrong! #BrazoriaCountystrong!
